TRADITIONAL AND MODERN
The Huber Fenster AG success story is very closely linked to the Huber family and they continue to write it daily. Pascal and Matthias Huber manage the company with great commitment and expertise in fifth generation. The company can look back on a long history steeped in tradition. In 1883, Gottlieb Huber, the great grandfather of Martin Huber, founded the company in Herisau. One can hardly imagine the humble beginnings of today’s state-of-the-art company. Gottlieb Huber joined his first windows using the simplest of tools and transported his products on a cart.
Since then, window and façade construction, architectural design, and tools and technology have developed at a rapid speed. Huber Fenster AG has kept pace with these developments and grown steadily. In 1983 we celebrated our 100th anniversary with 25 employees. Thirty years later in 2013 we already had over 80 employees in our company.
